20 weeks!

As of Sunday, I'm halfway through this pregnancy! Part of me feels like "I've been pregnant forever already can this baby just be here?!" and then the other part of me thinks "I've purchased ZERO things for this baby and we've done absolutely nothing yet...stay in as long as you want kid". Sorry second child...your older sister is too demanding for us to devote our attention fully to you at this point :(

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along: 20 weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +4  pounds

Maternity Clothes: Probably about 50-75% of the time. Most of my normal clothes are too tight but maternity clothes are still pretty loose.

Best Moment this Week: Finding out the gender and seeing our little healthy bean at the ultrasound!

Gender: We and a few friends know. We haven't officially announced yet but we will soon :)

Movement: All. The. Time. I don't think this baby ever sleeps. Should be fun come December :)

Food Cravings: Candy. Or salty foods. Our bank account wishes I would quit eating out but it's so hard when the cravings hit...they will not go away until I get the food I was craving :/ Also craving lots of fruits and salads though so that's nice :)

Food aversions: I'm finally getting over the nausea and morning sickness so most aversions are gone. It just depends on the day!

Symptoms/Changes: Super tired. Adelyn isn't sleeping well and I just feel like a useless zombie. A lot of light headedness and feeling like I'm going to faint. SUPER emotional. I don't remember being so hormonal with Addie but I feel like I could just cry at the drop of a hat the last week or so. Less headaches! Some abdominal cramping and sharp pains.

Sleep: Sleeping ok but if I wake up at night this baby is usually kicking which makes it harder to get back to sleep. I've been wide awake at night but then I wake up in the morning exhausted.

What I am looking forward to: Finally fitting into maternity clothes and looking visibly pregnant. Sitting down with Jake and agreeing on a baby name at some point :) Meeting this baby! I'm just ready for it to be December and being able to snuggle our little nugget.
